On Veganism and Being Fully Human ~ Dan Cudahy

Those who accept speciesism often do so because they believe humans

“superior” on the basis of rationality and empathy, but in a terrible

twist of irony, reject all rationality and empathy in refusing to

acknowledge sentience as the morally relevant characteristic on which

to base inclusion in the moral community. In refusing to apply such

rationality and empathy, they behave far worse than the nonhuman

animals toward whom they… Continue

Euphoria? For Whom? ~~ Gary L. Francione

Dear Colleagues:

In my previous blog post, Partners in Exploitation, I discussed the various labeling schemes endorsed and promoted by HSUS, PETA, and other animal welfare corporations.

Well low and behold, yesterday, I went to the local Whole Foods Market, you know, the one to which PETA gave the Best Animal-Friendly Retailer award, and I picked up a copy of the Whole Foods magazine, “Whole Deal.”

And there was a coupon for “All Natural Brown Cow Parfaits,”… Continue

In a Culture in Which Systematic Violence is the Norm, Standing for Non-violence is Radical. ~ Roger Yates

A tabloid journalist recently wrote blatant lies and gross distortions on my views on human-nonhuman relations. For example, he said that I believe that nonhuman animals have "all the same rights" as human

beings. To say such a silly thing shows that the man did not read my work; or failed to understand it, and has never read so much as a single page of animal rights…

The Was Once Life Within Your Food ~ Ben Frost

There was once life within your food!

Ben Frost

  • There was once life within your food.This is Bill.He is one of the lucky ones who has managed to find himself at a sanctuary, rather than the dinner plate. He has been lucky enough to have his rights fullfilled, his personhood restored, and the chance to live out the remainder of his life free from harm.Sadly, he is an extreme oddity. 53 Billion animals (not including fish, which easily doubles that number), no different to Bill - no different to us - are tortured, subjected to slavery, and then killed for our consumption every year from meat, dairy, and egg industries.Lets break it down. This means that, for our convience, habit, and pleasure, 1680 animals, no different to Bill - no different to us - are killed every SECOND.With each second that goes by, 1680 non-human persons are sentenced to death for nothing more than trivial want. There is no need. We do not need animal products to live healthily. Indeed, a growing number of health specialists are saying that animal products are extremely bad for our health.It makes no difference whether there’s a lamb rack on your plate, or a hard boiled egg. It mades no difference whether you chew on a chicken leg before bed, eat cheese and crackers, or drink a glass of milk. All animal products have come from a tortured and enslaved being, working as a machine for human ends, with premature death as the only reward.The faces of these slaves are never seen, the screams from the abbatoir never heard, the prisons of our captives never thought of - the voices of these enslaved persons are never noticed.Study the face of our friend, Bill. We must realise that every single one of the 53 billion we torture each year, differ in no way to him. They share the same desire for life as bill - the same desire we have - they share the same want as bill not to be harmed - the same want we have - and they share the same desire not to be tortured and used as someones property - again, the same desire we have as humans.The answer to this is quite simply, Veganism. There is no reason to support the continuation of this hollocaust-like tragedy on animals, which is something that is pervasive within our society today, something that is not even thought of - something that has been there for a long time, but yet so incredibly wrong.Remember the face of Bill, and be filled with the knowledge that, whatever animal product is on your plate, in your glass, or on your body - the non-human person behind that mask was no

    This is…
